I really like the idea of recording these moments we share as a family. There really is so much that I want to remember and sometimes at the ripe age of 24 I feel as if my memory is slipping from me. It's hard to think back to six years ago when Dominic was just a baby. I wish I'd recorded more at that time. I feel the same with Owyn's *little-hood* and am already feeling that way about Ellie's first fresh days. I want to retain every single moment I have with these littles because I know time will keep on moving steadily towards the future. So that, my friends, is what this blog will be. My memory savin' place!
The littles have had a case of the icky's here. There have been many sleepless nights this past week. Or heck, there have many sleepless nights this past month! We are currently battling pink eye in both of the boys and a horrible cold that Ellie caught from us after months of obsessive hand washing between the boys and I. We just can't win right now.. Or so it would seem. The thing is that even with the sickness of today it's been one hellava good day! I love when I get to spend school days here at home with the boys. I like being all together under one roof and even more so when I know there are places we should be.. (Yup, I'm a hermit!) On Monday night when I learned of Tuesdays possible snowfall I was ecstatic! I looked at Matt and said "I wish I could keep the boys home tomorrow!" when he asked why I explained that I wanted to be able to share that special moment of the year with them. He told me I was strange and asked if my mom was as strange as I am when we were kids.I guess he figures it has to come from somewhere. Truth is I don't know if Mom did want to keep us home for the first snowfall?! Probably not since she's not a big fan of snow or winter but I don't care! I'm rockin' with my own mama flow and that's just the kind of weird overly-emotional mama I am. I dig it.. and I think my kids do too!
I did end up sending Dominic to school Tuesday. I wanted to call it off but duty calls and the boys' got to keep up in class. (Little #2 was home with pink eye) As it turns out we really didn't miss the first snow together.. The flakes started falling on the bus ride home and the first thing he said when he walked in the door was *Mom, IT'S SNOWING" So we totally still shared our moment, and yes Matt, it really was that special!
